Dear Student: To qualify to pay in state fees, a student needs to meet both requirements of residency. These requirements are: intent to make California your home state, and being physically and continuously present in California for a year and one day before the residency determination date for the semester in which the student is planning to attend. Please download the Residency Affidavit from: www.canyons.edu/Offices/admissions/Pages/residency.aspx. It appears from the information that you have provided on your application for admissions that you are currently attending or attended an out of state college last semester; or you are attending an online program at an out of state school and, as a result, that information has classified you as a nonresident student. You may be able to provide the necessary documentation to meet that requirement by choosing one of the options below and provide the documentation that is described in the option you choose: 1. Provide the Residency Affidavit questionnaire and your parents’ 2014 California Income taxes indicating that you are their legal dependent as well as a copy of either parents’ California driver’s license that meets the year and one day residency requirement. If you filed 2014 California taxes you can provide them along with your California driver’s license that meets the year and one day residency requirement; or 2. You are able to reclassify under AB-540 if you attended a California high school for at least three years and graduated from a California high school. We will need official high school Transcripts, the Residency Affidavit, and the California Nonresident Tuition Exemption Form that you may download from our website; or 3. If you attended an out of state school and you were classified as a nonresident and paid nonresident fees, we will need a Verification letter from the out of state school, the Residency Affidavit, and two other California documents from the list that is provided in the Residency packet. Please note that we are unable to reclassify you as California resident without the Residency questionnaire and documentation. Once a student is classified as a nonresident student, California State Auditors require that we attach to the student’s application the Residency questionnaire and supporting documentation that indicates the student qualifies for in state fees. You will also need to process your residency reclassification before your registration date as fees are due upon registration. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
